[en anglais] Canada will take in 10,000 parent, grandparent sponsorship applications this year

Immigration Minister John McCallum says 10,000 applications for reunification of parents and grandparents will be accepted this year, despite a notice posted on the government's web site earlier this week cautioning applicants that a 5,000 annual cap was still in place.

McCallum said the government will accept 10,000 applications in keeping with the Liberal Party's pledge to double the 5,000 cap previously put in place by the Conservatives.

A notice posted on the government's web site Thursday said the application period is now closed and that the Immigration Department will retain the first 10,000 "complete" applications.

Comme vous pouvez le voir ci-dessous, cette promesse était originellement marquée comme étant brisée parce que le site web du gouvernement n'était pas à jour. Malgré ce qui est sur leur site web, le ministre de l'immigration a confirmé que son département allait en fait traiter 10 000 applications, tel que promis pendant la campagne électorale.

[en anglais] Liberals scrambling on family-immigrant targets

The federal immigration department has said it will be accepting the same number of applications this year as it did in 2015 from parents and grandparents wanting to join family members in Canada, despite a Liberal election promise to double the intake "immediately."

Doubling the number of applications from parents and grandparents to 10,000 a year was a central part of the Liberals' election platform.
